MILTON AND WORDSWORTH: Poets and Prophets

Not limited as sharply as the title would indicate. Brief bits of autobiography as well as other aspects regarding their works are included. Milton's prose as well as his poetry considered. Grierson's name is a standard one for college reference shelves -- a scholar of amazing erudition, clear insight, deep feeling. Here he discusses Milton and Wordsworth primarily as prophets, interpreting prophecy to moan interaction of feeling and reason. Only the last chapter deals with Wordsworth. Rich in quotation, many references to other men and their works -- a brief chapter on the Hebrew prophets -- all in all a rewarding piece of work, for the student of literature. Sale primarily schools, colleges and libraries.
